EXAMPLE LETTER – TESTING, TRACING, CASE INVESTIGATION WORKERS and FOLLOW-UP WORKERS
Senator Benson (or other senator name),
I am very concerned about the language and possible effects of SF 4500. I am also concerned that the Dept of Health will set the direction, policy and specific actions within SF 4500.
I am concerned about … insert.. testing and tracing mandates for all citizens, alternate housing, possible quarantining of children, etc. etc.
SF 4500 bill lacks specificity and thereby protection for citizens. Please, Insert protectionary parameters which removes testing and tracing mandates and ensures data privacy.
Re-establish consent language into SF 4500. Consent to test, to trace. Insert a Tennessen Warning for all citizens and other good sense measures to make sure Minnesota remains a free state.
The contact tracing programs are dystopian. Minnesota has had 500+ unfortunate deaths attributed to Covid-19. Consider whether these programs are needed at all. If you feel it is, consider placing a limitation on the number of contact tracers and a limitation on the number of case investigators and follow-up workers. Again, Is this program really needed based on the number of deaths? Minnesota is already terribly in debt. Consider carefully how much money is truly needed.
